If you have a good idea for waste reduction, sustainability, or city clean-up projects, you might want to consider applying for one of Waste Management’s grants.
Waste Management is partnering up with Seattle Public Utilities to provide grants to groups or individuals who have project ideas that support waste reduction, sustainable materials management, and cleaning up neighborhoods in Seattle.
Grant recipients will be selected based on the following criteria: environmental impact, waste reduction impact, neighborhood impact, community member involvement, and the project plan.
Up to five grants will be awarded to projects ranging from $500 to $10,000 — Waste Management has $10,000 total grant funding available.
Applicants must be Waste Management customers, and can be community groups, schools, organizations or businesses. The work must take place in Waste Management’s service areas 1 and 4 (service area map here).
Applications are due October 1st; to apply, fill out the online form and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
